So yesterday speaking with one of the Pediatric Nurses I got some amazing statistics!
Next Tuesday, I will also be sharing these on “Pathways to Authenticity’s” Blog Talk Radio show!
-90% of Diabetic people have Type 2
-30% of people with Type 2 have a direct relative with the disease
-Obesity drives Type 2
-10% of Diabetic people have Type 1
-3-6% of people with Type 1 have a direct relative with the disease
-not clear what drives this disease
-70% of Type 1 Diabetics are diagnosed before the age of 30
This is just a teaser of what is to come on next Tuesdays show. On the show I will also touch on:
-common warning signs
-our experience with the diagnosis
-what is Diabetes & the difference between Types 1 & 2
-how we try to keep our lives as normal as possible
-how we keep our little Diabetic happy, healthy and a kid
Hope everyone will be tuning in, next Tuesday night @8 pm. I will be posting a link to the show this weekend and next week:)
